Science Must Fall
Some #FeesMustFall student leaders are calling for the scrapping of “Western science”, and to “restart science from an African perspective”
A student leader said “science as a whole is a product of Western modernity, and the whole thing should be scratched off”.
She said “we have to restart science from an African perspective, from our perspective, of how we experienced science”.
She went on to describe how people in KwaZulu-Natal believe that black magic can be used to “send lightning” to strike someone. “Can you explain that science?” she asked.
#ScienceMustFall was the top trending topic on Twitter on Friday, with people ridiculing the statements made by the student leader.
“The sane among us need to get off this planet ASAP before gravity is decolonised by the #sciencemustfall zealots,” said Twitter user BabaBlackSheep.
Here’s why the student’s statements are not of value in an academic environment.
